New Testament

19. Matthew 6:1-14 (esv),
Giving to the Needy
1.“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. 2.“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 3.But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
The Lord's Prayer
5.“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6.But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 7.“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8.Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9.Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10.Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11.Give us this day our daily bread, 12.and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13.And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. 14.For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,
20. Matthew 6:24-30 (esv), 24.“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. 25.“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26.Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27.And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28.And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29.yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30.But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
21. Matthew 6:33 (esv), 33.But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
22. Matthew 10:29-36 (esv), 29.Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30.But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31.Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32.So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33.but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. 34.“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35.For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household.
23. Matthew 18:15-17 (esv), 15.“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16.But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17.If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
24. Matthew 25:24-29 (esv), 24.“Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25.So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ 26.“His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27.Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28.“ ‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. 29.For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.

27. Romans 2:6 (esv), 6.He will render to each one according to his works:
28. Romans 8:32 (esv), 32.He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
29. Romans 12:1-21 (esv),
A Living Sacrifice
1.I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2.Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Gifts of Grace
3.For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4.For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6.Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7.if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8.the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Marks of the True Christian
9.Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10.Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11.Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12.Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13.Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. 14.Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15.Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16.Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17.Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18.If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19.Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20.To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21.Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
30. Romans 13:1-5 (esv), 1.Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2.Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3.For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4.for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. 5.therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
31. Galatians 6:9-10 (esv), 9.And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
32. Ephesians 2:8-10 (esv), 8.For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
33. Ephesians 4:28 (esv), 28.Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
34. Ephesians 5:15-17 (esv), 15.Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16.making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17.Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
35. Ephesians 6:5 (esv), 5.Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ,
36. Philippians 2:5-8 (esv), 5.Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6.who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7.but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8.And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
37. Colossians 3:1-25 (esv),
Put On the New Self
1.If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2.Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3.For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God 4.When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. 5.Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6.On account of these the wrath of God is coming. 7.In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 8.But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9.Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10.and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 11.Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. 12.Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13.bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14.And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15.And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16.Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17.And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Rules for Christian Households
18.Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19.Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. 20.Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21.Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. 22.Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23.Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24.knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. 25.For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.
38. Colossians 4:1 (esv), 1.Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
39. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 (esv), 11.And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.
40. 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12 (esv), 6.In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. 7.For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, 8.nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 9.We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate. 10.For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 11.For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. 12.Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.
41. 1 Timothy 3:1-13 (esv),
Qualifications for Overseers
1.The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. 2.Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3.not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4.He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5.for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? 6.He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7.Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.
Qualifications for Deacons
8.Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9.They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10.And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11.Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12.Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13.For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
42. 1 Timothy 5:8 (esv), 8.Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
43. 1 Timothy 6:1-2 (esv), 1.Let all who are under a yoke as slaves regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be reviled. 2.Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brothers; rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their good service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these things.
44. 2 Timothy 2:15 (esv), 15.Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
45. James 2:17 (esv), 1.So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
46. Revelation 22:12 (esv), 12.“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done.
